I did an experiment recently, I tried to take some photos of my backyard
garden. I equip myself with a eos 20d, a 30v analog camera and a sigma EX zoom lens. Firstly I took some shots with the 20D with (adobe98) settings.
Next I took same the pictures with the analog using a fuji superia 200 film.
The settings for both camera are same eg focal lenght,iso etc. I then sent them all (film,CF card) to a Fuji lab for development.
When I got my pics back. I found out that the ones taken by 20D were indeed
more vibrant and colourful. But after closer inspection. I found the ones develop
from film have more tonal range(grass,soil). More Different shades of green and brown were detected and look more natural compared to the one by 20D. So I decided to tweak the ones taken by 20D in photoshop Hue and Saturation. To my suprise, I wasn't able to reproduce the kind of greens I got from film. Does that mean film tonal range is better?
